New ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Photos and The Story Will Focus on Getting Janet van Dyne Out of the Quantum Realm
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have a couple new photos to share with you from Ant-Man and The Wasp. We've also learned a few new story details that reveal the film will focus on Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) entering the quantum realm to rescue Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer). During an interview, Lilly explains:
"Scott entered the Quantum Realm in the first film and came back, which is something they thought was impossible. The question has arisen, ‘Can Janet come back?’ So the entire film, my character is hell-bent on finding a way to get into the Quantum Realm and bring her back."
I love that Pfeiffer is playing the original Wasp in this movie and I'm excited to see how she bring the character to life. When talking about the actress, director Peyton Reed said:
"She hasn’t done one of these films since she played Catwoman with Tim Burton. It was really interesting to bring her in and get her up to speed on all the mythology and her place in this world."
The director goes on to talk about the main villain in the film, Ghost, who is played by Hannah John-Kamen. He explains his reasoning behind making the villain a woman:
"The Ghost character could be male, female, anything, so it just seemed more interesting to us [to cast a woman]. Ghost’s primary power is the ability to ‘phase,’ which allows Ghost to move through solid matter. She has all sorts of strange versions of that phasing power — it proves quite difficult for Ant-Man and Wasp to deal with."
From what I've seen and heard, I like how they are handling Ghost in the film. I'm sure we'll see a lot more of her in the new trailer that will be released in the near future.
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes Ant-Man and The Wasp, a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a super hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside the Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from the past.
The movie hits theater on July 6th!
